That slide into fascism seems to be working out well for them...
I think it's partially a product of a two party system where you have to treat the one of the parties as legitimate even when they are a gang of hyper right-wing fascist racist misogynistic accelerationists.
It's notable that the vast majority of their press is still going down the route of "How dare you, Sir!" rather than advocating for protests and physical confrontation to the abuses being perpetrated. I think in part it's because they have been softened up to the notion of stopping brown people entering their country, as they know that a tidal wave of humanity will be washing up on their shores (metaphorically obviously) when climate change kicks in. Which of course they have been heavily involved in perpetrating*.
Children of Men yeah!
* Was an excellent Peter Oborne piece on this in From our own correspondent the other day about the "taste of climate change"
